OBJECTIVE To evaluate the benefit to risk ratio of thrombolytic treatment in patients with small inferior acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Controlled studies relating the benefit from thrombolysis with initial electrocardiographic features are scarce and of limited sample size. DESIGN Retrospective study of 728 patients with a first inferior AMI of six hours' duration from the Intravenous Streptokinase in Acute Myocardial Infarction (ISAM) study comparing streptokinase with placebo… CONTINUE READING
